Untitled. Freshwater aquarium plants provide many obvious and not so obvious benefits to any freshwater aquarium.
While most would agree that live plants make an aquarium more attractive, they also provide many behind the scenes benefits as well. Live plants help maintain quality water by removing excess nutrients from the water. Live plants provide both food and shelter for many species of freshwater fish, which gives them both a sense of security and improves their overall health and quality of life. Mostly though plants add color, life and variety to the aquarium and can be entertaining to raise and view all by themselves.

Phoenix Moss, Fissidens fontanus. - How to grow Aquatic Moss. Aquamoss -> List of Aquatic Moss -> Phoenix Moss - Fissidens fontanus A newly 'discovered' aquatic moss, Fissidens fontanus which originates from USA, is now available in Singapore.
It is a very nice fissidens species and it is truely aquatic. The best part is that the rhizoids of Fissidens fontanus would cling on readily to the woods or stones after a while, and so doesn't require frequent re-tying of the moss. Coupled with the fact that this fissidens is small in size and not very fast growing, one can see the potential of using Fissidens fontanus to cover the driftwood and bogwood and create a natural aquarium landacape. Once the fissidens settled in and take 'root', it would virtually be maintenance free. Note: Phoenix Moss, or Phoenix Tail Moss, is a general term use in Taiwan aquatic litreature to represent all the Fissidens species, apparently due to the similarity of the 'fronds' of the Fissidens to the tail feathers of the Phoenix.

Killiefish. Killiefish species are comparatively easy to keep in aquariums and also very beautiful, which have made them very popular among aquarists.
Even a novice fish keeper can usually get the Killiefish into breeding condition in aquariums. Unlike many other popular aquarium species, the Killiefish is more often bought directly from breeders and not from fish stores or pet shops. Killiefish is sometimes spelled without the letter e, “Killifish”, and this is the original spelling and is derived from the Dutch word for creek. Killifish can therefore be translated as ‘creek fish’, and it is an aptly chosen name since many Killiefish species lives in creeks and streams.
Killiefish can however also be found in larger rivers and lakes. All the Killiefish species are small tooth carps belonging to the order Cyprinodontiformes. Killiefish inhabit very different environments and have adapted to different diets. Epiplatys dageti monroviae - a killie fish. Didn't find the info you were looking for?
